Phantom Limb: The first known description of phantom limb was given by Ambroise Paré, a 16th-century surgeon: "For the patients, long after the amputation is made, say they still feel pain in the amputated part. Of this they complain strongly, a thing worthy of wonder and almost incredible to people who have not experienced this."
